The quarter then drew to a close with a flurry of US and EU sanctions activity targeting Russian and Ukrainian persons—and the looming possibility of broader sanctions to follow. US authorities otherwise continued to issue narcotics and terrorism-related sanctions, while the EU amended a handful of country-specific sanctions, including a suspension of the majority of sanctions targeting Zimbabwe.
